Jenna Bush Hager is the 2023 Summer Reading Champion



The New Mexico State Library is proud to support the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s 2023 Summer Reading Program, All Together Now, at public libraries across the state.

This year, CSLP welcomes the support of Jenna Bush Hager as the 2023 Summer Reading Champion.  Jenna has created the Read with Jenna Jr’s Summer Reading List that brings together diverse titles for young children through teens to read this summer.  You can view and print Jenna’s Summer Reading List here.  Libraries are encouraged to print the list and make available to patrons.

Jenna explained:

“I’m so excited to be partnering with CSLP to promote summer reading! I come from a long line of book lovers (my mom was a librarian!). Summer nights, cuddled up with my mom or grandmothers and a book are some of my most precious memories. I can’t wait to encourage other kids to do the same– to dig into the pages of their first chapter book, get lost in a picture book or pick up their first earlier reader and let their imaginations take them away!

All Together Now is a beautiful testament to what I hope books can do for us all: connect and encourage acceptance of many different types of people.”


Let’s get reading New Mexico!
